Yo, tg,

I was going to send a mail about this yesterday. I've decided I'm going
to start a quest to support this. I settled on Build-Indep-Architecture

Anyway, dpkg doesn't need to be involved besides not choking on the
d/control line. We can just change wanna-build, debile and launchpad to
pass --arch-all to sbuild[1], which sbuild totes already supports.

The launchpad team seems willing, and i've not talked with wanna-build,
but I'm sure they're up for it.

BTW; the syntax would define a single arch; you know, in the spirit of

Someone willing to take this work up from me would clear my plate up to
do other thing, but it's something I want to see :)
